Late 20's, student commuter. I love the telling of stories and have devoted countless hours to the study of oral tradition and literature.
I have been trying to become more familiar with children's lit, so I chose this one because it had some good reviews. The narration was great. The story was very juvenile because of its lack of literary merit and real depth, but did contain some rather dark elements.
I recommend it if you've got a child under ten years. Well under ten years.
